Canada has no free speech laws and the government can make up whatever they want now with the Corona-chan emergency powers. What other alternative platforms are there? BitChute is even worse being located in the UK, which is the nest of Fabian Socialism. People go to jail there for indirectly hurting anyone's feelings over a tweet and the police actively works with the far left and Islamists to set people up. Pretty sure it's a honeypot to track, tag and identify people.
>Six states in US seem to have banned the sale of the most powerful pre-build gaming PCs already, with the argument of climate policy and energy efficiency regulation: https://youtu.be/HxUMqJmh1pc
This is absolutely insane, something you would see in a communist country. People have been leaving shitty consoles in droves for PC gaming. Now what? They'll be forced to play shitty cash grab games on their phones? Hopefully this forces people to actually learn how to build computers instead of putting their head down further and putting up with it, but you know they're going to ban components too that don't meet their impossible standards, but that's also why people and businesses are moving from these states and they're going to ruin. The more people they push out, the more they'll group together and stand against this shit.
Yeah, switching to Linux changed everything for me. Any sort of error you get on Windows tells you basically nothing and requires a Microsoft technician to solve or finding a solution created by them online. You have no control over the system. On Linux you can dive into the logs, source code and really figure out what's going wrong to fix it yourself. I had to profile programs and optimize them so they ran decently on my Pentium 4 until even Debian dropped support for its ancient graphics card. Windows couldn't even boot on that machine, but I made thousands of dollars off work done on that machine and could eventually afford something new.
>Heh, I tremble to think that we here literally are one of the ever-fewer bastions of free-thought to help preserve knowledge and indeed humanity
Probably. Look at /g/ or the smaller /tech/ boards. They're mostly filled with Q&A and consumerism. /agdg/ is just a husk of what it use to be. People are just making things that have been done before and arguing about which game engine or language is better like it's a football team. There's groups like ElutherAI that are actually doing something, but their time is limited on Shitcord until corporations successfully push the idea AI is dangerous and people using unregulated AI are extremists.
And of course, the WEF just put out an article on the roadmap to restricting technology:
Do you have a loicense for that GPU?
>You simply can't make a horse drink the water if he doesn't care to
This is basically it. People are demoralized and don't care to strive for anything. The A/C is on. People have food and water and they're listening to their favorite music. So long as they have that they don't care about anything or anyone else.
This is the frontline for open-source robowaifus and it sucks, but computers, anime and Linux also sucked when they first started. We just gotta keep pushing forward and breaking through limitations, because things are getting heated up.
